I guess I am having too much issues with my new (used) Benz. My 190E model has a fish tail dancing left and right whenever I step up on the gas pedal at high speed around 70 mph but when I am cruising even at high speed the car will be stable. In other words, it starts out dancing and stays in control. There is no high winds on the freeway, it does all the time! There must be wrong on the suspension? I did bounce all four corner of the vehicle and it all bounce only once. Suspension seems to be good to me. Please help, thanks

Try to do allignment and make sure the toe are adjusted properly.
Also check the wheels to make sure they are not bent.

As mentioned before, check the alignment, sometimes improper alignment will cause the car to go to one side when you step on the gas, and go to the other side when you let off. Also, if the fishtailing you mention is a shift in the rear end from side to side, the thrust arms may need to be replaced, if this is the case, send me an e-mail at [email protected] and we can provide these parts at excellent prices.
